Vehicle standards maintenance


We regularly review the Australian Light Vehicle Standards Rules 2015 and the Heavy Vehicle (Vehicle Standards) National Regulation. This ensures they remain contemporary and promote improved transport productivity and safety outcomes.

In November 2018, the Transport and Infrastructure Council approved changes to the Heavy Vehicle (Vehicle Standards) National Regulations and the Australian Light Vehicle Standards. Once these changes come into effect, they will be applied by state and territory legislation.

The Heavy Vehicle (Vehicle Standards) National Regulation Amendment Regulation 2018 is available in the key documents section below.

For a copy of the Australian Light Vehicle Standards Rules Amendment 2018, visit the Parliamentary Counsel Committee website.
